I like where you're going with this. I've done a few car-to-pickup (or flower car, depending on the size and style of the car) conversions in the past, and in fact have a '57 Chrysler 300C in the works at the moment. You might consider entering this one in the "Because We Can" CBP that's based on the theme of these car-based pickups. I don't see why a dedicated flower car wouldn't qualify.

Really not sure about those enclosed front wheel openings, but I'll wait and see how they turn out. Love the way the top and cargo bed are done. B)

The enclosed front wheel openings look a lot better on second glance (seeing it all in primer helps it would seem), I'm thinking it just might work. B)

Hey man, this thing is looking killer, I love the flames. I'm not a fan of full side skirts so I'm glad you left a little opening to show some white wall. Just curious but what do you mean when you say Hudson "flower"? I looked it up but all googled showed me were a lot of different flower shop...haha. Looks great tho, I would love to build me one of these pickups, where did you get this kit? Keep up the good work

Thanks,not too many are fans of front enclosed fenders they're hard to work in unless youre doing a flying 5th Element type ride.Im just calling it what they were calling it in the Jimmy Flintstone catologe,because these type of cars delivered flowers to funerals and cemetaries.But the name I got for it is Bathtub Funeral and You can see why.

Well listen, it's like what you said, your building it for you and no one else. That's the only way to do it. I might not be a fan of the enclosed look but I do like we're this is going. It's interesting how they got that name, is this a kit or did you custom do the bed yourself?
